Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges. It could be that your black cartridge needs cleaning. Try to do the Deep Clean Printhead function on the printer. Press Ink Levels -> press More Options -> select Deep Clean Printhead. The printer will then print a clean cartridge nozzles page. If black ink is not printed on the page, you may need to update your printer's firmware. The update corrects print quality issues on your printer. You can easily download and install the update using this link Lexmark Platinum Pro905 Firmware Update. Download and install the Pro905 update. Thanks.

Can i print in black if the colour has run out


You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer will prime every once in a while thus the need for all cartridges to have sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

Pro905 is out of color ink. can i print in black and white text only


The Lexmark Platinum Pro905 needs all four inks to have substantial ink for printing at all times in order to prevent damage to the printhead. This is why a user has to replace empty ink cartridges to continue printing. This includes color cartridges for black only jobs.

My Lexmark Pro 905 has stopped printing colour. All cartridges are full.


Does the ink stuck up for a long time. I mean you do not print anything for long period of time? If yes, the ink dries up and try to clean the ink head by using rubbing the ink head cartridge to plain paper with isopropyl alcohol.

If not, the best way if to replace the ink cartridge and it will be fine printing.

Dell A960 cartridge problem


Does the black cartridge print? If not did you take the tape off of it? Error 50 is a generalized error reading relating to a number of cartridge problems. If the color cartridge is empty, it may be theproblem although I have not found this to be true on Dell printers. If you remove the color cartridge and reinstall it the reading will indicate its full (even though it isn't. This may solve the problem.

Canon IP90 portable . No ink printing.


Have you performed a nozzle test? If one or more of the colors is missing when you do the nozzle test, the printhead itself is likely in need of replacement.

Before considering replacment, perform a clean on the printer. Due to variations between mac and pc, please see your documentation / support files on how to perform the clean on your printer.

After performing the clean, again perform the nozzle check to see if the problem is resolved.

If still not resolved, remove and re-install any cartridges you recently replaced to make certain they are installed correctly.
